Mixed-Use Zoning District (MUZD) [DPA2016-00020] - A Zoning Text Amendment to facilitate mixed-use development through creation of a new family of zones, including establishing context-sensitive parameters for MUZD establishment within the Small Area Plan process. The MUZD is intended to incent an appropriate mix of residential and commercial uses through establishment of allowable residential and commercial Floor Area Ratios (FAR) and urban design parameters. The MUZD development project is a collaboration with the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments through the Transportation-Land Use Connections (TLC) program.
On June 21, 2016, the Board of County Supervisors initiated a Zoning Text Amendment to allow flexibility in the mix of uses and development standards for mixed-use developments.
